I am a fourth grade teacher at a San Francisco public school. I have a class of 31 bright and eager students who love learning. I have, in the past, purchased a class set of pocket dictionaries to loan students for the academic year. Throughout the year I have seen how reliable and handy these dictionaries become in our daily discussion and learning. At the end of the year, I have, with a heavy heart, collected these dictionaries for use the following academic year. The students are quite sad to have to return them as many do not have a modern and/or intermediate dictionary at home. Also, many of my class set of 35 have been lost, and the ones that have been returned have been given back in poor condition.
I would appreciate a class set of 35 pocket dictionaries that have durable covers that the students would be able to keep at the end of the year. This would mean a lot to my students who enjoy playing games like "Balderdash" using new words they find in the dictionary. Your kind support is much appreciated, and on behalf of these eager recipients, I thank you.
